My boys like the complaining. Car rides are too long. Walking hurts legs. This Chateau LeBlanc is supposed to be served slightly chilled, not room temperature. They never want to go anywhere. Once they are there they never want to leave. They never want mustard on their burger unless you make it without it. They want interest on any money I may borrow. You know, all the standards. It’s kind of pathetic.

So it was against all things better judgment and common sense that we took them on a hike. Their first hike. A long hike. A hike filled with switchback trails and steep paths. A hike that many adults have complained about. Actually, it was kind of an accident.

Do you know what the boys said?
